... on the little boat that ferries people across, but it went to a different jetty then expected. No problem, I'll just walk, the problem was no path along the river, but GPS showed I could walk around. On the way I encountered a Orchid garden which hosted a world exhibition on a couple of months ago. The gardens were spectacular and flower amazing. Bumped into a couple of westerners sitting in the only section ...

... hier scheinbar harmonisch miteinander leben. Wir hoffen, dass euch die Fotos einen guten Eindruck geben. Muslime neben Indern, neben Chinesen und Malays, alles bunt durchgemischt und dazwischen immer mal wieder ein paar Touristen. Der Orchideengarten von Kuching ist so imposant, dass es dafür einen eigenen Eintrag geben wird. Auch unser Ausflug zu den Orangutans verdient einen separaten Eintrag. Die Kuriositäten ...

... to get in it as it left 6 minutes before we arrived and the driver turned it around and picked us up, obviously in his financial interests, but also very helpful for us.

And I saw some Orangutans! They are so shaggy! And Ginger! Didn't see the 15 year old one with the bigger face but saw two families, was beautiful.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Damai Beach Resort Kuching

    Paradise!

    from

    We had our 7th trip to Damai in November05.

    We will be returning in October06.

    I am shocked at the reviews given by some tripadvisors.

    I think when you visit Kuching/Sarawak you have to put yourself into "Borneo" time and relax.

    Nothing happens very quickly but hey have you got an appointment to go to?

    The staff are always friendly always found rooms clean and setting is "Paradise"

    Cant wait for the next trip!

    We loved it

    from

    Sorry to hear that some people had problems with the Damai Beach resort, my wife and I have stayed at the Damai Lagoon on two occasions totaling 4 weeks and frequented the Damai beach for use of the pool and for dining out several times, and have found the staff to be courtious proficient and only too pleased to help in what ever way they can, I for one and another couple that we met there from the UK will be heading back that way for our Christmas break 2006 and will no doubt have an excellent holiday.

    Excellent rates

    from

    Great room for the price. I think it cost us under US$50 per night per room. Maybe it was during the quiet time of the year (late January) but the family loved it. We stayed in one of the hilltop suite - huge. It even had a spa. Nobody else there on our side of the road so it was very quiet. The hilltop pool was excellent, better than the main pool.

    The included breakfast is decent although not much changes in the daily menu. We didn't eat in the main restauranr but the Treez restaurant within the resort have reasonable prices. Again not much of a variety but still we had to eat.

    Kuching is just a 45 minutes ride in the shuttle bus for under US$3 each way.

    The wet season wasn't wet at all...

    All in all excellent value.

    Love the hotel and staff

    from

    we have stayed at this hotel five times now and love it, the food and the staff have always been friendly and efficient, in fact we love it so much we are going back next year

    Go for the chalets, steer clear from hilltops!!

    from

    We opted for a deluxe hilltop room upon recommendation that the views are nice & the pool at the hilltop nicer than the one at the main building - but that was ALL there was to the hilltop rooms. The room was dusty (housekeeping used brooms - that could have contributed), the toilet looked old, housekeeping takes an eternity (apparently the store is down at the main building) and DO NOT rely on the shuttle button for the shuttle service - call ahead to the lobby for a shuttle. We waited half an hour one morning and ended up walking down to the main lobby with a toddler in arms... and no shuttle passed us!

    What a HUGE disappointment

    from

    This hotel is in a beautiful location, with nice rooms and a nice pool, but any appeal is completely ruined by the dreadful service and the awful food.

    Lovely Views, Tasteless Foods

    from

    On the arrival day, my friend and I was so impressed with the surrounding views. When we entered the room, once again we were very happy to see that it's such a big room for us with 2 queen size bed. However, when we tried the room service food, it were very un-satisfying as the foods were very tasteless. We tried to be positive and I keep convincing my friend that the food for the breakfast would be better. However during our stay there (3 days), I can conclude that the breakfast more focusing on Western food which suit the taste for tourists from Western. It's very difficult to see local food especially Malaysian famous meal for breakfast "nasi lemak". I even heard one tourist complaining that they want to try Asian breakfast instead of Western. We've tried buffet dinner there and it were very unsatisfying to see the selection of the food. It's not variety and the taste, as I mentioned above.

    STAY WELL WELL AWAY!!!!

    from

    When there's nothing good to say usually it's best to say nothing at all, but in this case.......

    Beautiful place

    from

    damai beach was a wonderful place that i ever had. staff was lovely and well-trained. all being friendly and giving service promptly. but, it is quite busy especially weekend. the are suddenly in bottleneck and well we think the have problem in shortage of staff especially in service area and front line. everything was okey..and the room was lovely especially seafront chalet and executive suite. next time, we'll try to stay in Baruk Suite.

    Damai Beach

    from

    Dont visit on a bank holiday weekend as it is a nightmare. Make use of the shuttle to visit the pool on the top end of the resort as it is beautiful and much more tranquil than the general pool. Food at the resort is ok but take a trip out to the numerous eateries near by - many will provide transport.
